Recomend me some music
 
as per title, mainly after female vocals, they just do 'it' to me.
my tasts are kate bush, enya, roy orb, dire straights, mellisa etheridge and a few others.

No live recordings HATE them with a passion, I want to hear music, not some yob squeeling louder than the singer/band.

Well, if you don't mind a transvestite doing "it" to you, then try Antony And The Johnsons. Their first (self titled) album is better than their latest, although the e.p. of "The Lake" is also great.

Indeed! Not to mention being mixed by a deaf sound man.

Erm, Kate Bush was on ocaukrell's list. But, I suppose she bears repeating. The new album is quite good, but it's no "Hounds of Love".

Thanks so far people.
LOVE K.B.

Tried rachelle farrell - 'waiting', bit bland. well that song anyway.
Any other kb ones I must get ;)
Will be sampling some Sia shortly (dial-up=slow)

I don't like the sound personally, but it's worth a listen.

Made me eyes pop out that one did,.:bigeyes:

Havent really bought many cd's over the last 15 years, so a question.
If they say the cd has been remastered (yes I know what it means) does it usually indicate an improvement or not ?
As in, should i get the original or the remastered of a particular disc ?

Just tried Sia - the bully, oh my god (boring), I will be so upset when kb leaves us, very few seem to be able to bring out such emotion and range, she really is superb.

Jazz: Astrud Gilberto and Eva Cassidy may be less main stream. Diana Krall?

Folk: Allison Kraus and Rachel McCartney (http://www.rachelmccartney.com). I also liked the stylings of Ani DiFranco at one time, but the subject matter gets repetitive.

As for live stuff, the Peter Gabriel 2-disc that came out in the early/mid 90's wasn't too poorly done.

Maybe Keri Noble?

kd lang has the best pipes in the business. "Absolute Torch and Twang" is a masterpiece.

Any of Joni Mitchell's jazz period albums (Mingus, Hissing, Don Juan...) are stupendous. As a bonus, most of those albums also feature Jaco Pastorius doing his very best work.
